EGP Celebrates 10 Years of Success
Excel Global Partners celebrated its 10th anniversary on November 2017 and its founder, James Nowlin went all out in expressing his heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has contributed to the success of his corporate consulting firm.
James explained the motivation behind EGP. James’ years of working as a corporate attorney for a corporate consulting firm opened his eyes to the harsh reality that global behemoth consulting firms are exploiting small and medium businesses. These gigantic corporations have a monopoly on the consulting market so they constantly get away with offering slow-moving, non-problem solving solutions at ridiculous prices.
James wanted to give businesses a better alternative, a consulting firm that actually cares for and prioritizes its clients’ success. He wanted to build a company that not only works for clients by serving as their solutions-driver but also acts as their partner that collaborates with them with their best interest in mind.

Analyzing the Similarities & Differences Between EPM & CPM
EPM (Enterprise Performance Management) and CPM (Corporate Performance Management) are the most popular solutions for solving an organization’s performance management problems. The two terms have their fair share of similarities and differences and you need to understand both of these clearly so you can make the right choice regarding which solution you should pursue.
EPM and CPM are quite similar if you look at their foundations. They both cover the same business process groups: 1) planning, 2) consolidation, and 3) reporting and analytics. They also share the same purpose of seamlessly integrating the various strategies being used by the organization into one, cohesive, all-encompassing strategy.
The main difference between EPM and CPM lies in their focus. Enterprise Performance Management is engineered for general use. It can be adopted not only by businesses, but also by non-corporate entities such as government agencies, educational institutions, and non-profit foundations. Corporate Performance Management, on the other hand, is designed specifically for corporations. It focuses mainly on the financial processes of an income-generating entity. It is, therefore, near impossible for non-corporate organizations to utilize it.
